and the other in montana. tickets have been will be available to the general public so the president may see angry outbursts in the crowd he faces. who's likely to come out on top once the shouting is over. with me is erin billings. this is usually a boring time for us covering the hill but this has been anything but. >> these town halls are typically snoozers, people go home, few people show up and it is civil and now hundreds of people, you saw claire mccast kill. there is people coming from owl sides. i think both sides are appropriating the fomenting thage station. so this isn't necessarily just cropping up. having said that people are passionate about this and clearly members are hearing it. >> you saw arlen specter and you were saying what we didn't see is he's called in capitol police for reinforcements. >> he did. and the capitol police last week the sergeant at arms said be wary, mindful, diligent and vigilant when you go home because there were already protests starting up and arlen specter of pennsylvania as you saw the footage, he asked the capitol police to sent officers. they s

on the road for a town hall. where is he headed? >> he is going to bozeman, montana to a county where he carried by 1600 votes. they have voted twice for him -- for george bush in the past. there is some sense and that they want to get max baucus' attention by going there, and montana is ground zero for health care reform, because that is where he is from. we have already seen people lining up to get tickets to the event. bill: there is a gallup poll out today that says independent voters are moving in a certain way. 35% are more sympathetic to the views of the protesters, opposed to 16% who are less sympathetic. how are these numbers being received? >> in the briefing yesterday, we heard robert kids say that some people were somewhat disappointed that he did not get a tougher response in new hampshire. he constantly talked about the food fight of the debate and have cable news is feeding on this, but clearly from the gallup poll, independents are starting to become sympathetic with these people protesting. certainly not good in terms of public opinion. bill: thank you. megyn: do you rem

to campaign in. but in montana, in north dakota, in states like that, that money goes a long, long way. so it's a lot cheaper to buy those senators, and those senators are more than happy to make that money because it sort of frees them from the responsibility or the chore of having to raise money from actual average, regular americans. it's easier to get that $5,000 check or that pac money than it is to ask some regular american for a $20 contribution. >> so what do we do about this now? >> well, i mean, we're going to have to keep fighting the way we're fighting it. it's a propaganda war in a lot of ways. i mean, you have the insurance companies doing these -- these astroturf protests trying to sort of create this impression that this is a broad american mandate against health care reform. we see the polls. we see the numbers. it's obviously not true. americans want reform. they want it desperately. and i think we need to keep talking about it and keep pushing and keep calling and writing legislators and reminding them that they made a campaign promise to support and to reform the system, t
